Goethe-Zentrum (Association of German Culture), Hyderabad, in association with Max Mueller Bhavan, New Delhi, is organising a Jazz concert by the world famous Wolfgang Haffner & Group, at its office at Hermitage Complex in Hill Fort Road, this Sunday, as part of the association's 2nd anniversary celebrations.

The band has Wolfgang Haffner, the founder and the leader, playing the drums, Setastian Studnitzky on the trumpet and piano, Christian Diener on the e-bass and Frank Kuruc with the guitar.

Wolfgang Haffner is one of the most successful drum players of the modern era and a living legend. He started playing the drums and the piano at the age of 6. After finishing his school, he began his career as a professional musician in the German-French Jazz Ensemble, conducted by German Jazz legend Albert Mangelsdorff. The band played at various festivals, including the Paris Jazz Festival and the Jazzfest Berlin.

Haffner later became the drummer in Klaus Doldinger's Passport, with whom he played for 11 years, touring Europe and South Africa. In 1994 & 1995, he was the drummer in the band of one of the great female singers of all times, Chaka Khan. In 1994, he joined the US fusion superband METRO with Chuck Loeb, Mitch Forman and Anthony Jackson. In 1997 Haffner and his long-time colleague Roberto Di Gioia started their successful Group Zappelbude.

Haffner worked with many great jazz artistes including Pat Metheny, Michael & Randy Brecker, Bill Evans, Woody Shaw, Roy Hargrove, Johnny Griffin, Cassandra Wilson, Joe Pass, Bob James, Joe Lovano, Clark Terry, Eddie Daniels, Mc Coy Tyner, Art Farmer, Pee Wee Ellis, Esbjörn Svensson, Joe Sample, Fred Wesley, Roy Ayers, Hiram Bullock, Will Lee, Robben Ford, Jan Garbarek, Michael Franks, Wolfgang Niedecken, Konstantin Wecker and Lalo Schifrin, and bands like Die Fantastischen Vier, No Angels, DePhazz, and the WDR Big Band Cologne.

He has toured around the world and performed in more than 50 countries. In 2002, Haffner formed the Wolfgang Haffner Band which toured in Europe, featuring the music of his earlier albums Music & Urban Life. When not performing with his own Band, he plays with the Nils Landgren Funk Unit of Sweden and with German trumpet star Till Bronner.

Haffner has played on about 350 recordings, including 10 albums under his own name. In spring 2004, he produced the new album of the Iclandic supergroup, Mezzoforte. Zooming is the new CD by Wolfgang Haffner on Skip Records.
